Testimonials

I really enjoyed the workshop, I came away with a clear understanding of the paddle technique I need to work on and learnt a few new things.
— Gary Davie, Currumbin
Very nice couple and he can paddle; and a great teacher!
— Tex Turner, Launceston
In retrospect doing the group session and then the one-on-one session a few days later worked brilliantly. I’ve already noticed an improvement against my normal paddling buddies
— Peter Pavilinovich, Perth
One minute into the session I realized that: 1) Sean is a truly nice guy, 2) He loves his sport and 3) He loves to teach. All in all, an amazing experience, a real privilege to learn from the very best in the sport, and a great push to my surfski abilities and motivation! Thank You.
— Juan Jose Garcia Seijo, Spain
